Prior to her role as host, Ms. Rascoe was a White House Correspondent and covered three presidential administrations. Before joining NPR in 2018, Ms. Rascoe spent the first decade of her career at Reuters, covering some of the biggest energy and environmental stories of the past decade, including the 2010 BP oil spill and the U.S. response to the Fukushima nuclear crisis in 2011.
